One of the best restaurants in the city, this lovely dining room inside Mandalay Bay features waterfalls and live swans. The room seems very European, but the menu items are American and seafood cuisine. Try any of the seafood dishes and you won't go wrong, especially with the Saffron Scallops. One of the best-known features is the wine tower, with a multi-storied wine cellar complete with pulley-climbing wine stewards.
The food was good, one person in my party complained about every dish he ordered but he had it in his mind that it wasn't a good place to eat because of the more recent reviews he'd read on the internet. The best thing I had was the augratin potatoes with blue cheese that came with the ribeye. Too bad there wasn't more of those! I love creme brulee so I ordered the special which was half vanilla and half mocha creme brulee with a pistachio cookie on top each. These desserts were very tiny. I couldn't really taste the mocha flavor in that part of the dessert, it was more like chocolate pudding. The food was good, just probably not $110 for 1 meal good. The service was good, we had no problems there. I am disappointed that Frommer's gave this place 3 stars, I think they should go back and re-evaluate this place. Frommer's is usually pretty accurate. I was hoping for the best that Vegas had to offer. I hope this wasn't it. The restrooms were very strange, they were very dark so you can't very well check out your make-up and the sink looked like something you might find at a roadside rest area. I expected something a bit more high-end from a place like this.
